Brown
Governor signs budget
California's new 2015-16 budget increases education funding over last year's level by $7.6 billion. When combined with increases of $6.1 billion in 2013-14 and 2014-15 as well as other one-time savings and adjustments in those years, there has been an increased investment in K-14 education of more than $14 billion.
Conference
CSEA's Annual Conference
CSEA’s 89th Annual Conference will be held at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas from July 27-31, 2015. Over the course of a week, dedicated classified employees come from all over California to share ideas, debate and vote on resolutions, adopt a budget, elect state officers and present awards for outstanding service and achievement. The conference is where CSEA members set the leadership, legislative and budgetary direction of the union.
Pensions
Proposed ballot measure takes aim at retirement security
Anti-pension politicians have revived their effort to deny retirement security for public servants such as classified employees, teachers, police officers and firemen by filling a statewide ballot initiative that would eliminate secure pensions for all new employees without guaranteeing any other type of retirement benefit in return.
